Default Removal of BIND from FreeBSD base system

From a mail by Doug Barton http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/f...il/056057.html



On February 21 I sent a message to freebsd-arch at FreeBSD.org detailing
the current state of BIND on FreeBSD, and plans for the future. You can
see that message here:

In that message I asked for feedback on my plans for dealing with BIND
in the base. There wasn't much response on the lists, however I did
receive a great deal of response privately, all more or less to the
effect of, "Do we really need to continue having BIND in the base at
all?" After careful consideration and private discussion about this
issue the conclusion has been reached that the answer to this question
is, "No." Therefore we will be removing BIND from the FreeBSD base.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
